Your book is one of the few modern memoirs that does. So does Colby Buzzell's. I can think of many more - Nate Fick's, Craig Mullaney's, even your friend Exum's - that don't. I remember you saying that you didn't write Kaboom for a Senatorial campaign someday. That truth, and O'Brien's quote, are probably related, as well.
